Lee’s ‘Tiger’ will close New York Film Fest

Chow, Yeoh to attend screening

NEW YORK — The North American premiere of Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” starring Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh, will close the 38th New York Film Festival.

Lee (“The Ice Storm,” “Sense and Sensibility”) will attend the Oct. 9 screening along with Chow and Yeoh, who portray two of ancient China’s greatest warriors, each harboring a secret love for the other.

Pic will be released wide by Sony Pictures Classics this winter. “I think it’s going to be one of the great closing nights,” company co-prexy Michael Barker told Daily Variety.

The 38th New York Film Festival, organized by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and sponsored by Grand Marnier, runs Sept. 22-Oct. 9 at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.
